A few notes heading into Week 7:

Ten teams have a better winning percentage than the Philadelphia Eagles, but the NFC East co-leaders are third in ESPN’s Football Power Index after games of Week 6.

The Eagles rose 0.5 point in FPI and one spot in the rankings after Monday’s 27-7 victory over the New York Giants. The Eagles’ FPI rating is 5.3, compared with the No. 1-ranked New England Patriots’ 8.7. That means that FPI judges the Patriots to be about 3½ points better than the Eagles on a neutral field.

In Monday’s game, the Eagles registered a defensive efficiency of 91.3 (0-to-100 scale), their second-best performance of the season. The Eagles’ defensive component of FPI is 5.3 (second in the NFL to the New York Jets’ 5.4).

The Arizona Cardinals lost for the second time this season but remain No. 2 in FPI.

The biggest climber after Week 6, in terms of FPI rating and rank, are the Miami Dolphins. Their FPI rating improved 2.4 points, and they moved up eight spots in the rankings to 16th after their 38-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Looking ahead to Week 7, FPI sees Sunday’s game between the Jets and the Patriots as the top game, with a pregame matchup quality of 82.7 -- eighth-highest of any game this season. (This includes projections for every game this season, which vary from week to week based on outcomes.)
